The Bozeman meeting proved to be a grand backdrop for a great conference. For some of us it was a twenty-year old homecoming, for others a first look at our organization, and, for most, a fruitful reunion of colleagues that share interests in a diverse set of areas within our art form and disciplines.
The best thing about UFVA is it means different things to all its diverse stakeholder groups. At the conference, visual storytellers, traditional and non-traditional, are able to connect with those in each of their areas, and experience presentations and screenings together. The conference choices are many, we can explore outside our areas, and be surprised by the passion that other members bring to their work.
